Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

NICAP's Richard Hall reportedly told that in San Antonio, Texas, on August 22, 1965, at 01:00 a.m., two brothers, Gregory Galloway, 15, and Ralph Galloway Jr., 11, saw by the window of their bedroom to a luminous cigar-shaped object pass at the height of trees.

Shortly after the object went out of sight, the boys heard a noise on the roof, followed of knocks of the door and sound of footsteps. A bit shaken the appearance of the object, one of the boys said as a joke, "come in," and then there was luminous flash at the room's door, followed by the appearance of the silhouette of a man about of the size of their father.

Now very frightened, they ran to their parents' bedroom, where they insisted to spend the rest of the night. The family lived near Brooks Air Force Base.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in San Antonio, Texas, on August 22, 1965, at 01:00 a.m., two brothers, Gregory, 15, and Ralph Jr., 11, saw a luminous object passing by their bedroom window; it was cigar shaped, and moving slowly at the heights of trees outside the house. Shortly after the object passed out of view from the window, the boys heard a thump on the roof, followed by a knocking sound and footfalls. Being somewhat shaken by the appearance of the object, one of the boys jokingly called out, "Come in," whereupon there was a bright flash at the doorway of the room, followed by the appearance of the silhouette of a man about the height of their father. By now badly frightened, they hastened to their parent's room, where they insisted on spending the remainder of the night. The family lives in the vicinity of Brooks Air Force Base.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Richard Hall for Nicap.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on August 22, 1965, at 01:00 a.m., in San Antonio H12, Texas, USA, there was a close encounter with an unidentified craft and its occupants. One object was observed by two witnesses, Galloway; Gregory, in a bedroom briefly.

The sources are indicated as Webb, David, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports; Bloecher, Ted R., Ted R Bloecher investigation files.

Points to consider:

The information is totally insufficient: there is no description of the "entity" except that it was as tall as the boys' father - which might not be a mere coincidence. There is no reason to suspect the UFO was anything out of the ordinary, and no reason to link the UFO and the so-called entity.
